Zaxwerks Newsletter - March 2014

Happy March!


Recently we released some behind-the-scenes videos. These videos are interviews with our founder, Zax, about what went into the development of the 3D ProAnimator software and how it has changed the way you work with animation. It's really interesting stuff straight from the mind of the creator himself.

This month's newsletter contains links to all the Behind The Scenes videos as well as the tutorials which explain how to use the features Zax talks about.

If you haven't yet followed us on Facebook, Twitter or Youtube, go do it NOW! You will receive our undying appreciation and be eligible for specials, giveaways and other perks that are only for our social media followers.

Every Feature Has A Story: "ease controls"

This video contains the story behind 3D ProAnimator's Ease Controls. That doesn't sound very sexy, but sometimes it's the little things that count. Find out why standard Ease In and Ease Out controls stink, why they needed to be reinvented, and how a re-think can produce some startling increases in productivity and ease of use.

Every Feature Has A Story: "motion paths"

The second video is the story behind motion paths. Until 3D ProAnimator, motion paths were just the by-products of keyframe placement. This is the story of how motion paths were reinvented so their shapes could become design elements, and an object's motion could become much more interesting to watch.

Tutorial - Fragmentation In Depth

Fragmentation is often seen as the end result of blowing things up. This is a very limited and short-sighted view. Learn how 3D ProAnimator unleashes new ideas by letting you use fragmentation as a design tool. If you want to create animations no-one has seen, this is how you do it.
